One word: AWESOME. The most amazing AO I have had the privilege to attend, and to top it off, I had the honor of serving under MSG "Mad Max" Mullen.

MARCH OR DIE RANGERS!

So far, it looks like TAN won...since TAN are all saying it was awesome while Green are saying it wasn't awesome.

So, who won?!

i had an awesome time, missed out on the Sunday missions but Saturday and the "night" mission were well worth the trip and the price. i was with IFA 2-2, our primary objective during the first mission was to secure and destroy buildings 19 and 20, they were demoed (real demoed) long before we arrived so from that point we moved on building 21 in support of another platoon (don't remember which one).

the AO was dangerous, over a dozen heat casualties were evac-ed the first day and there were 30ft pits that randomly appeared. it was however the coolest AO iv played at so far, me and some of S.T.A.T. (i think) were cornered in some kind of locker room by green forces before we made a mad dash charge just before endex.



will edit/add more when i have time. apologies for any bad grammar

Agree. It was one of the coolest and DANGEROUS AO's I've ever seen. Numerous way to die at this place. We had full run of the abandoned steel mill, including the crane catwalks, acid pits, etc. My brother works in a similar steel mill upriver from where we played and he was pointing out the hazards on Fridays walk through. Even he couldn't believe we were going to be allowed in some of those places. The OUTSIDE was even better. Aptly name "the wastelands". Pictures do not due the MASSIVE size of the AO justice. I was easily able to drive the "tank" THROUGH buildings.

Unfortunately, someone told me on Sunday that the entire complex is scheduled for demolition within the next year, so there my not be a NL4 at this location. Too bad.

It was a great event. From my perspective on Tan, comms were great, teamwork was great, green generally called their hits, and it seemed like we got the job done all weekend long.

So, who won?!
I'm hoping Tan won Blade, but we all know how scoring goes at these things. Kinda like, Who's Line is it Anyway... But whatever, it was still a great weekend.

High five to our guys Battlehog and Clutch, who pretty much saved one guy who was collapsing due to heat exhaustion. People were dropping Saturday afternoon...

And I can only echo what has been said about the dangers at this place. The number of things that could kill you on the facility was mind blowing. My squad was tasked inside the facility for 90% of the weekend, and it was crazy in there. You would find yourself walking in the dark and all of a sudden feel the floor start to dip under you, look down and realize you were on a piece of steel laying across a 20' deep hole 10' long and unsure how it was secured there...
Some people thought the Mansfield Reformatory was a dangerous place to play... this trumps it 100x over. After the walkthrough Friday night, the three guys in my squad that didn't have lights went and either got one from home or bought one.

Crazy AO, awesome event, great weekend!

Given the state of Detroit's industry in general, plus JL's typical marketing prowess, lets hope that some other industrial site/land owners in the area took note of the possibilities. And maybe we'll get a NL thereabouts next time too.

...Hey if I was Mayor of "Dead Industry-ville USA" I know *I'd* certainly be doing everything I could to bring outside $$ into my area.

Any impressions from Green out there? (Aside from the boys over on the Indianna boards)

I've never been disappointed at a Lion Claws event, and this was no exception.

Yes there were many dangers at the AO, but I didn't hear of any non-heat related injuries. The AO was absolutely the best I've ever played. I preferred it to both Zussman and MUTC. It was far more realistic, and combined the best of both urban and field play. IMO, the only thing it lacked was wooded areas. The "night" OP was concluded before dark, which was a wise choice on event staffs part, I would not want to be out in this place in the dark.

Sportsmanship was what I expect at major events, well above average. The LC staff did another awesome job of providing challenging objectives, superb leadership and outstanding organization.

The only negative was the heat. I wasn't affected by it, but it caused lower attendance at some scenarios.

I would jump at the chance to play an event at this AO again.

As for who won, I know Rangers had the points lead at the end of Saturday, and we completed all objectives sunday, so I would assume Rangers won.

My 2nd Northern Light, and this one was by far the best. The only bad thing I can say about it was the heat. But even that was not that bad if inside, with the breeze that was blowing. AO is huge, not a place for the out of shape. I have bad knees and it took a toll on them, but loved it. This AO was not one to run through blindly. Also, watching Hardlock in tank battles and taking down infantry was also worth it. Was Platoon Leader for 2nd Platoon tan. What an awsome group of guys to serve with. Thanks to my Western Pa squad, Det 13 and STAT. You guys helped make it a awsome event, and the Sunday defense of 21, will always be a great memory.

Fun fact: all of the heat casualties were medics.

Overall, I had a blast. It was great to fight under Mullen alongside with my father.

I was in platoon 2, squad 1. Our first objective was to take several buildings. 2-4 tagged alobg and supported us during the push. Armcav also fought with us in what I considered to be a very intense fight to take the buildings opposite our spawn. After that, we were ordered to push up and assault another area. Armcav led a push up to one of the far buildings in which I broke off with several members of Ohio to flank the enemy. During this time we had to evade the tank. Two of the members and myself made a push into a shack, but were taken out upon entering. After we respawned, I found my squad. We were ordered to push up. 2-1 got heavily bogged down by a platoon of rebels headed to support the group we had previously engaged. After our weakened squad dealt some casualties, we were eliminated. Then endex was called.

Scenario two involved a grueling push towards the airfield. After making a push with two other squad members and taking the hangar, we were ordered to fall back to the radio tower. We fell back and were eliminated after holding off for a long while. I was then pulled off due to heat issues when I reached spawn.

I skipped game 3.

The next morning my squad was ordered to take Building 21. In a battle that would rival the Bulge, Platoon 2 plus others met with the better part of the entire enemy team. In a matter of 15the minutes I was down to three magazines left. Hardlock, I owe everything to ya. Without you and the wise thinking of Armcav, we would have been overrun. However, we held strong. After forcing the rebels out, we pushed out of the building and chased after them. We were soon eliminated, but we pushed them back into their spawn.

Then the ending happened. After meeting with my squad, a FRAGO came in to take a nearby building. After raiding said building, we came to a door that had been blocked by a chair. I booted it in and we stormed the room. I believe it was Slim who shot me in the side of the head. Nice shot.

We soon called Parlay and went out, only to hear that endex was called.

Shout out to Sacrifice and all those I forgot to mention. 3-1, it was great holding 21 with you, even though nobody had .30s lol. To the rest of Platoon 2, it was great fighting with you.

And in finale,
MARCH OR DIE!

My first Lion Claws event; the AO and experience was awesome. John Lu puts on an amazing event. Really enjoyed rolling with the Drenlan 1-1 squad and looking foward to playing with everyone again down the road.

Very impressive yet dangerous AO. The heat and humididity provided a real test for attendees, and it managed to thin the crowds to higher quality players towards the end. I was impressed with the command structure, the effectiveness of communication and the integrity on both sides.

I don't particularly know or care about who won. I know that I had one heck of a time with a lot of cool people, and this place makes Fran Bar look like a Chuck E Cheese's when it comes to liability. Nice playing with you guys. Good times to remember.

I have to say I had the best time I've had in 4 or 5 years.

The AO was grand. The pics do NOT do any of the scale justice, as many have pointed out already.

I started hydrating a week before the event. Something I haven't faithfully done in the past. This, I feel, was why I had such a good time. It may seem trivial to some, but being well hydrated during the game is absolutely critical. I felt great all day Saturday and Sunday and didn't feel like I was hit by a truck Monday morning - which is a first!
I drank a minimum of 1 gallon of water per day up to the event. No coffee....can you guys believe that!!!!.....Wednesday and Thursday. Had 1 cup on Friday, though.
So, the point is learn from my past mistakes. Drink and drink and drink some more ....water, that is!

I want to give a shout-out to my squad. I really feel that it was because of them that I had such a great time.
I was the only one from Strikers that was able to make the event and so 1-1 (dismounted) was composed of folks that hadn't previously operated together as a whole. We had 3 from Blizzard, 2 from (forgive me for not remembering the team, guys) New York, and 2 from Michigan (again, forgive me for not remembering your team).
I don't think I could be more proud or honored to have served with:
Motown
Phantom
Faxon
Rubba
Hippy
And the 2 sneakiest guys around - The Ninjas!
I can't recall the Ninja's callsigns, that's how sneaky they are....they're like shadows that disappear. One is from Buffalo and one is from Rochester.
Thanks guys. I'd serve with my 1-1 squad any time!
I didn't get a chance to tell you at the debrief, but 1-1 accomplished each and every mission with which we were tasked!


TF 513 - HUGE thanks Hardlock and Iron Maiden...was like old times for sure. They were great, as well as many other Ohio teams. Had a chance to roll with a few guys at a time during the weekend, STAT and SPEAR, and others, too. My mind isn't as good as it once was so I tend to forget names sometimes, so sorry if I don't mention you specifically. Plus, some Ohio teams were on the green side so I didn't roll with them. 6mm guys, for instance.

Best event I've been to. That was a weekend for the ages for me. The days were grueling. The firefights were epic. The teamwork and sportsmanship were chart topping. The renegades were relentless. They seemed to be around every corner, under every bush, and on every rooftop.

Too many stories to tell.

Awesome.

AO even tho every step I thought to myself...yup I will be wrapping an ankle or sending someone to the morgue, it was amazingly cool! Loved my group and all the great experiences. First event in a long time that I didn't wind up with a major injury of some sort...YAY.

Typical big event problems, but nothing that wasn't expected. LOVED seeing everyone again.

Special kudo's to Audrey (sorry don't know her callsign or what team she was on) but WOW she held onto the tank thru all kinds of twists and turns and still came out swinging! Was great running with GL again, yup just like old times! Awesome to have SPEAR to watch our backs even tho I made a boo boo...sooooorrrryyyy!!! and 6mm to shoot at....btw Decoy I am going to get you....oh yes I PROMISE! muhahahaha Not to mention all the other players that I got to see again! Always an honor to work for MSG.

I will say my favorite memory of the weekend will be hanging on for dear life as Hardlock chase the opposing technical (they were in full reverse as we chased them) at FULL speed thru and around half the buildings til we finally were able to stop and Hardlock was able to pull out the big gun and shoot them! SO hope the video got some of that chase.

I got a brief clip of footage of the green technical driving in reverse through the building with you guys in pursuit. That was awesome! Nice work out there.

We had a blast. One of the best events I've been to. Sure there were a few issues but nothing that ruined my fun. The AO was challenging and vast. The size alone made for a real world feel, something you rarely get anymore. The idea that contact can be anywhere and everywhere but at the same time the possibility that nobody is there. The anticipation was more of a thrill than the shooting. It will be hard to top this event. 3rd platoon you rocked and fought through the heat. Best group of guys I've worked with and SPEAR, you were amazing out there.

Raven95, it was a blast fighting beside you for the weekend.

The AO was awesome for my first event as a player. I was field staff at NL2 in PA last year. Many things out there besides the heat could kill you. This was the PERFECT AO for a true post-apocalyptic feel. The piles of rubble, steel, old trailers, train cars, catwalks, and everything else that i'm forgetting made it all worthwhile and fun.

Hardlock, seeing you chase the the green technical straight backwards was hilarious!! You saved most of us from being over run up at 21 Sunday morning. Thanks for that.

ArmCav, it was a pleasure to have you as platoon leader, and also to fight beside you most of Sunday. I gotta say that was the best firefight I have ever been in. I think all of green came at us in that little area, but we held them off with just a few casualties.

I also must say i'm sad to realize this may be the only event at this AO, due to scheduled demolition in the next year. Cant wait to see what John Lu and Greg Brothers come up with next year.

In closing, IFA 2-1, 1.2.3...MARCH OR DIE!!!

Awesome field, one of the most varied, fun, dangerous and TOUGH fields I've ever had the honor to play on. So many different environments that required different tactics and strategies. The field was massive and could surely have accommodated many more players than what attended. Heat was a killer, and that walk back to the respawn from building 21 and the airfield seemed like forever. Hydrating constantly was a necessity just to stay upright.

Had a great time taking the airfield Saturday afternoon with 2nd Platoon and scoring a "bang" kill on Green CO Sgt. Thomas right before we got steamrolled. Even though we were severely outnumbered and pushed out, 2nd platoons defense of that airfield with MSG Mullen was my favorite part of the weekend. The tough fight at 21 and my S.T.A.T. guys subsequently holding the line against several green squads in the factory near 8/9 on Sunday were also memorable moments of great teamwork.

Sportsmanship was great! Didn't hear any hostilities and didn't have the usual issues of players not calling their hits or calling other players' hits. Truly a great bunch of players on the field this weekend. Even though I was definitely taken out more by that damn green "tank" than anything else.

Always a pleasure operating under the leadership of MSG Mullen and hopefully (although it looks unlikely) there will be more opportunities to play at this amazing AO in the future. It was a pleasure rolling with S.P.E.A.R., Det 13, Armcav, and everyone else on Tan I'm surely forgetting. I don't care who won or lost, it was a great weekend either way.

I have to say this my favorite Lionclaws event I have been to yet. I had the honor of staffing/shadow forcing the event with all my boys from TF 216.

Both sides put up a good fight against eachother and the heat. The heat forced us from fighting both sides to delivering rain grenades in the 2nd scenario, wich probably ended up being are most inportant task of the day with all people that were dropping from the heat.

As far as who won I would have to say the tan rolled on green the whole weekend. Enough so that we didn't feel the need to give them any extra info or capture one of us (sorry about that tan).

I do have to say to all the players that this was by far the best sportsmanship I have every seen at any event, people were calling there hits and kept level heads for most if not all of the weekend.

Awesome weekend out there and I can't wait for the next one.

Everything you could want in an AO and more. One minute you are walking through decimated ruins of a steel mill equipment, next thing you are climbing a ladder and walking on a catwalk 30 feet or more up in the air. At one point when trying to sneak up on some green I was climbing over some tube type things which I had done before and they had been locked in place. Well this time they rolled apart and I found myself hanging over a 10-15 foot pit (by hanging i mean my legs went through. I was NOT hanging by fingertips arms up in the air or anything). Thanfully was easy to get myself up with hand from a Ninja. But a dangerous and exciting AO.

Had a great time with 1-1. Glaeken did a great job leading us. Last morning op was by far my favorite. Spent most of it digging grean out of some dark dusty holes. Lots of fun.



Never worked this hard in my life since football in my younger days. As tan took more and more of the AO we had to hike farther and farther and farther to the respawn and Faxon and I always seemed to get hit where a medic could not get to us, so lots of hiking but was worth it.

Only complaint if I had one was the night op was kind of a waste of time. Not much was put into organizing it and way uneven teams caused it to be just a bunch of standing around and dicking off. Probly woulda skipped it had a known this. But everything else was great.

Shout out to Motown and Phantom good work guys run with you anytime.

Rubba and Faxon- you guys helped me out a lot with equipment and everything and made it a blast to be at this event. As usual had a great time running with you guys looking forward to BLIND FURY and running with rest of Blizzard!
